2nd Set: But it's alright, as "Touch" so wisely states. Jerry muffs some words here and there, but it's fine. "Samson" ambles on with professional duty. "Ship" is convincingly depressing. I don't consider myself a fool nor do I want to be on the sinking ship. Whoever did not immediately call out "Estimated" to follow is a baffoon. Tis always a pleasure, but they're living off the exhileration of last night. After the braying, it settles into an appealing bluesy jam ending with the declaration that Lenny Hart is indeed, "Gone." Smokey and some keen doo-wop embellish this typical version. No jammy :( Off to "Drums." Quiet and breathy as is "Space." as if paddling my legs through a fauna filled fresh lake. Now there's a pirhana sneaking up "TOO" Bobby sang too soon...but it's the calm before the chorus which then thrusts us into a chase with our lives on the line. Escaping their pointy , indebted to a bottom-feeding destitute denizen by the name of August West. We stand in solidarity with the "Wharf Rat." Emerging from our mid-afternoon dip we hear the preservationists' stampeding with their claps that emerge as the band segues from verse to chorus in a well-mannered "Throwing." Wow, I haven't heard a crowd matching Bobby with the "On our Own." However, their "NFA" claps are a bit off-putting. Moving on to an earned "NFA" wave that Jerry rides effortlessly.
It all makes perfect sense with a sweet (MIDI-distracting) "Brokedown."
3 1/4 stars

Anyway, this concert was well played and the BIODTL was treat for me. There were som tech issues in the first few songs with Garcia's gitar. They got fixed and we were on our way.
Have not listened to the show yet but I will. Many AUDs from Cap Centre are ok if in correct place.
Sorry for the ramble.
